Re: Vote No on Measure DD [Village News letter, 10/13/16]

The process to build Bonsall High School started 10 years ago when parents asked, “Why must the great education that students receive in our district stop at 8th grade?” Signatures were gathered, the petition was found sufficient, public hearings were held recommending approval and it was sent to ballot. The people voted to unify in 2012.

Now we need a state of the art campus for our students. When our family moved to Sycamore Ranch in 1998, we were advised that a property on Gird Road was zoned to be a high school. Every buyer was informed.

Now Bonsall Unified School District owns this land and will

build the high school there. Before Sycamore Ranch was developed, some people argued that it would negatively impact traffic and the country feel. But now it’s a beautifully established part of our community. Bonsall High School will be the same.

Support our district so BHS can be built the right way. Get involved in the planning. Nearby neighbors will be able to say things like, ‘Let’s go watch the soccer game’ or ‘I’m going to walk over to the fitness center’, or ‘I heard the theatre department is

putting on Guys and Dolls – let’s go!’

Whether you have school age kids or not, these are our students and this is our community. Opportunities only happen when you say Yes!

Saying Yes on Measure DD is good for all of us!
